'Gu'achi Crawl' Tuesday night

The group's "Gu'achi Crawl" will start at 6:30 p.m. at Mi Pueblo El Centro Mexican restaurant, 108 Kentucky St., where restaurant patrons will be entertained with live music while they dine.

The music continues at 8 p.m. at Copperfield's Books, down the street at 140 Kentucky. The last stop is at 9 p.m. at Dempsey's Restaurant and Brewery, in the Golden Eagle Shopping Center at 50 E. Washington Street.

Fiddler Barbara Arhon is the leader of the group. She will be joined by guitarists Chris Samson and Gary Grubb, accordionist Steve Della Maggiora and fiddler Gus Garelick, although all five musicians will not necessarily all be playing together at all three venues.

Arhon was inspired by the music of the the Gu'achi Fiddlers, a group named after the town of Gu'achi in Southern Arizona where they reside. The uptempo instrumental music is a derived from Mexican, Native American and Swedish music. Los Gu'achis also perform Early California and traditional songs

Their repertoire includes "Santa Rosa Processional," "Cancion de Los Angeles," "Cielito Lindo," "Purple Lily," "Ashokan Farewell" and "Golden Slippers."
